Casa Blanca

This town of just over 350 inhabitants, located on the Uruguay River about 15 kilometers from the city of Paysandu, is no ordinary village. It emerged in 1806 as a result of the oldest beef processing plant set up in South America.
Surrounded by a beautiful natural setting, the houses retain the appearance of the mid-nineteenth century. Among them are La Casona de los CuatroVientos (House of the Four Winds) (1862), La Pulperia (the General Store) (1860) and the Santa Ana Chapel (1886), a contemporary of the Basilica de Nuestra Señora del Rosario and San Benito of Palermo, located in the city of Paysandu.
In February 2015, this was the venue for the first edition of the Fiesta del Reencuentro y la Vaca (the Cow and Reunion Festival), where the first monument to this emblematic animal was erected, and three time capsules were buried. Our recommendation to those visiting this destination is to contact local guides to explore the historic buildings of the town and enjoy water sports and fishing
